This is one of the many best desserts which you can bake for festive celebrations especially if you are looking for unusual cookies ideas.
The most important trick here is not to overmix the cookie mixture. You can also chill them first prior to baking to add some crunch and crisp.
- 2/3 cup Butter
- 3/4 cup Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1/4 cup Manuka Honey
- 1 Large Egg; lightly beaten
- 2 cups Self–Raising Flour; sifted
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Ground Ginger
- 1 tsp Cinnamon Powder
- 1/2 cup Yellow Raisins; soaked in brandy
- 1/4 tsp Salt
Remove raisins from brandy and set aside for later use.
Beat butter together with granulated sugar. Add beaten egg followed by manuka honey and salt. Blend well. Mix in sifted flour and baking powder. Now sprinkle ground ginger and cinnamon powder. Roll in plump–up raisins and mix just well with a large spoon.
Shape mixture into 3/4 inch balls and put onto greased cookie sheet. Allow enough space for cookies to expand. Bake at 180°C for 10 minutes or until cookies turn golden.
